COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kolsch, the clean and refreshing beer style of Cologne, Germany, quenches summertime thirst. This pale golden ale with a lightly fruity aroma is cold-conditioned or lagered after its primary fermentation. More simply, our Summertime uses only the finest malts and German hops to create the perfect beer for hot Summer days and warm Summer nights.

extremely pale, very large head. lightly sour aroma of hops, maybe saaz(?) and a little grapey sweetness. very thin but good mouthfeel and carbonation. very refreshing, but nothing special.

This beer didn’t stink. But it wasn’t so good either. Amber with white foamy head. Light malty sweetness amd some fruit notes to the nose. Good mouthfeel but not rich and rewarding. Clean, smooth, crisp taste. Good "Lawnmower Beer" and I mean that in a good way.

This beer is pretty good. It definitely works well as a summer beer and just makes me wonder if this brewery is available in Las Vegas at all...anyone know?

I was disappointed. This had some head and a bit of color to it, but the flavor was well below what I was hoping for in the Kolsch.

From the Tap. Wow, this was awful. I don’t know if the style is supposed to be this bland, but when the bartender handed me the glass and it looked even more watered down than most lite beers, I was wary. It had a head, that was a good sign. First drink, incredibly watery, no malt or hops. I had to hand it to my friend to confirm my suspicions. Yes, he thought it was bad too.

Looks and smells like a macro. Poured a decent head of large bubble and quickly disappeared. Taste is better than looks or smell but I get a definite dirty-copper flavor. No real finish. Might be good on a hot summer day after mowing the lawn.

TChrome (1425) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Appearance is, well, rather macro swillish. Medium pale gold color with a mostly diminishing egg white head. Aroma is restrained with some light spiciness and a mild suggestion of hops. Flavor betters the aroma and appearance. Flavors detected include decent hoppiness a bit of white pepper and the finish is dry and lightly bitter. This very well named and makes an excellent thirst quencher on hot days.

There was almost no aroma to this out of the tap at Goose Island. The beer was mild, with little to no complexity in the flavor. It was smooth and extremely drinkable, par for the course for a summertime beer. I don't think it is anything special, though.

heemer77 (5109) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 16, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2004 Light grass in the aroma. The hops is very light and this is obvious for the style. There is nothing exciting happening here. However, it is still very refreshing.

Hazy yellow, white head, and a good deal of lace. Aroma has hints of apple and citrus. Full mouthfeel with low carbonation. Slightly slippery. Sweet and satisfying.
